Using the lists
First you should subscribe to one or several of the mailing lists presented below. After subscribing you can send emails to the list(s) by using the mailing list address stated in its description. If you would rather want to use the mailing list through a news group interface, please read the section News group interface.
If you are new to mailing lists in general, please read RFC 1855 - Netiquette Guidelines, especially the sections 3.1.1 and 3.1.2. Before you ask any questions you should also have a look at How To Ask Questions The Smart WayItalian translation for How To Ask Questions The Smart Way.
Please note that these documents are linked here solely for the purpose of information. Their respective authors have nothing to do with DokuWiki and in no case should you send email to them, asking for help related to DokuWiki!
- Don't send your mails as HTML
- When answering, don't quote the whole text. Just leave some context to understand what you are relating to
- Write your answer below the quoted text (this make it easier to follow longer conversations)
- Use meaningful subject lines
- Don't start a new topic by replying to any other list message (this messes up threading)
- Don't CC list members when replying (they would get your mail twice) — hit “reply”, not “reply all”
- Don't use the list for idle chit chat, if your message adds no new information don't send it
A failure to follow the rules might result in a temporary ban from the list without warning.

It can be more convenient to read a mailing list as if it were a news group. For that reason, the DokuWiki mailing lists can also be accessed using NNTP via Gmane:
Important: Please do subscribe to the mailing list when using the Gmane interface. Otherwise, your posts will require manual intervention by the admin, who won't be happy at all!
